Flowood, Miss. – St. Dominic Hospital and Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Mississippi (BCBSMS) announce their partnership to deliver telehealth services. St. Dominic’s telehealth services are currently focused on neurology and cardiology specialty care as well as emergency stroke care. The telehealth collaboration supports local access to high quality specialty care for Blue Cross and Blue Shield members in their own communities.

As a continuation of services post-discharge from the hospital, St. Dominic’s Clinical Outreach Program provides telehealth access for patients in the rural clinic setting with St. Dominic’s specialty care physicians, including neurologists and cardiologists, for necessary follow-up care. St. Dominic’s Clinical Outreach Program also provides access to neurology and cardiology specialty care when referred by a Primary Care Provider. Access to this specialty care can often prevent future hospital stays, and this program seeks to ensure care coordination between Primary Care and Specialty Care Network Providers.

“These services are ideal complements to care delivered by our Blue Primary Care Network Providers serving rural areas as they allow patients to have high quality, coordinated specialty care that is aligned with their overall health goals with minimal disruption to daily life. These services are making it easier for patients to stay engaged in their care and to have better health outcomes as a result,” said Dr. Tom Fenter, chief medical officer at Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Mississippi.
